The coronavirus continues to force professional wrestling promotions to cancel or postpone their events. The most recent set of announcements come from two of the leading promotions in women's wrestling.
SHIMMER, the long-running women's wrestling promotion, announced today that it would be postponing its March 28th and 29th events scheduled to take place in Berwyn, Illinois, due to the global pandemic of COVID-19. According to their announcement, the exact details on rescheduling will not only depend on the containment of the pandemic but a combination of talent and venue availability.
SHIMMER 3/28 and 3/29 events postponed
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, unfortunately the SHIMMER events scheduled for 3/28 and 3/29 at the Eagles Club in Berwyn, IL must be postponed. All tickets to the events will be valid on the rescheduled dates, which are currently in the process of being determined. The new dates will depend on a combination of talent and venue availability, which we are working on right now. Ticket holders who are unable to attend the events on the rescheduled dates will have the option of receiving a refund. As soon as we have further information available, we’ll let you all know.
